Since the sheriff of the countv Issued

the farthest (mint to which the Pennsyl

citizens' committee pass is Hashed.
NotwithstaiidiiiK that deputy sheriffs
ami other authorities are there to
prevent Ihis order beiii violated, anx

the same. Many who have friends and
famiii.s among them ueededed to ob
serve this order or were not aware of its
existence and had to walk eighteen
miles. To tired women this seems rather
hard. IHscrimination wa shown in a
few cases so far as the passe rurers havinjr

eiven, however, that they will be ejected
if the order is not obcyej.

A horse, hupjv.sisl to Is the one ujHm
which Robert Wickersh.iui was riding
when the Hood overtook him and hi

U!on the preniis,s of a farmer back ol
Vioodvale. The horse had apparently
It-en in the woods fur several days, anil
was almost starved. I'jton his back wa.'
a (-.nldle, which was sup"osi-il to lie
owned by Mr. Wicker-ham. The farmer
will keep tiie horse until called for. Mr.
Wiokcrsham was the chief draughtsman
at the Johnson Stis-1 coutianv's works.
Wickersham was seen ti climb up the
polo until he reached the cross-arms,
where he rested. 1 ie uptiareiitiy thought
he was safe, and ycllisl to a number of
js-iple to run up the hill out of the
water's reach. In a few minutes the
jaile ".--ig-.-ii" and tipcd over.
Wickershatn still clung to it and tht
pole ls-gan to drop lower and lower.
All of a sudden the k.U- gavea lun h and

jieansl from view and was m-eu no more.
Th- people living lti ih row- of frame
holis. s on th .- hillside oj.isite saw him
as he went down.
tin the hillside aliove the woolen mill
are scattered any number of freight cars,
caliooscs. tenders, etc. A train of ca
liooses coupli-d together, standing on
their wheels on the hillside in the midst
of high maple tns-s, is an unique con
ception, but sneh is the sight to lie wit

will get their cars and engines out of the

THE CRONIN CASE.
A Personal Friend or .lex. SnlllTan tha
Principal W'ttneat. -
Chicago. June 7. John A. Beggs, the
lawyer who has figured in the case as
a personal friend of Alexander Sullivan
and who went east on a, mysterious
mission for the latter, was the principal
witness at the coroner's iiu-ueot.. Under
a close cross-examination he admitted
that he was the present senior guardian
of Camp s!0 of the C'lan-Na-Gael. There
was no roster of the camp in existance.
He could not swear that he did not meet
Detective Coughlin on the day of
Cronin's disap-ieanince. nor on the fol
lowing day, pleading faulty memory.
He remeiuliered, however, tlrnt he wa.4
at the Urand Pacific on the night in
ipiestion with a party of friends. At a
camp meeting in January he said there
were several attacks by inuendo Uon
Alexander Sullivan and in response bo
pitched into the sp.akers and handled
them without gloves, telling them that
if they wanted to abuse Sullivan they
should mention his name and not attack
him under cover in a cowardly manner.
Ho rc'ated the story of eaiing to New
York May 14 and meeting a man named
Powers, who told him that h- had met
Starkey. the fugitive jury brilier. From
thence he went to Spring Valley. N. Y.
Witness F.iiiphatirally lls-nies
that he hud sent n dispatch from that
point signed with his initials an.l to the
effect that he had met Dr. Crouiii.
From Spring Valley he went to Niagara
Falls, w here he met John If. Koinayne,
a member of the Clan-Na-liael executive
committee. They had a general talk.
He had seen Alex. Sullivan since his re
turn, but r.ot a word passed about the
finding of the Uxly. Replying to a final
jucstion Bergs said tliat he had no
theory regarding tiie murder.
